Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"It's quick, easy, super nutritious and tastes absolutely fantastic. Win win win! You can make up the chickpea salad part ahead of time, and make it into a sandwich when you want it by drizzling some olive oil on the bread and spoon the mix on top. Ingredients can vary - basically whatever veggies you can find. Feel free to substitute as necessary."

  1. Mix red onion, green onions, garlic scapes, red bell pepper, carrots, celery, English cucumber, zucchini, chickpeas, capers, paprika, cayenne pepper, and Italian dressing together in a large bowl. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
  2. Drizzle olive oil on one side of each bread slice and spread chickpea mixture on half the slices. Top with second piece of bread to make a sandwich.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • When I make it I usually do everything by hand, but if you have a food processor handy it goes much faster, but make sure that you stop before you turn everything into mush. If you don't want to eat it with bread it is delicious on it's own as a salad!
